Wounded Warriors Family Support
February 2, 2013

Being married to a disabled veteran and the mother to a special needs child, my name and story was passed around to several larger organizations. I was given bumper stickers, plastic cups and access to websites to read about how rough life is for the caregivers of disabled vets. Nothing that really helped me not feel so isolated and alone. WWFS showed personal interest in my life issues and pulled me out of a depression that was heading for suicide. I have been given a better understanding of my husbands mental state and in the few short months that we have been in the program, our family is building strong happy accepting relationships again. I can laugh and smile again thanks to a special lady that works for this organization. They have a wealth of knowledge of what disabled veteran's families go through - they tailor their program to you and what you need to get your life back on track. WWFS even found a program where we could apply for a mortgage free home - we did and we got it. The point is that this non profit is not looking for all the glory - they are really trying to help these veterans whose lives are forever changed due to their sacrifice. These men will carry the price of freedom and democracy on their backs and in their minds to their graves. WWFS understands that and is providing outlets and education for families like mine to enjoy life again. Their level of personal involvement with the families in their program exceeds any expectation you would expect from an organization like this. You are not just signed up and put on a mailing list. They want to make sure you are given the skills you need to adjust. They want to inspire you to find solutions to issues you may be having and will help you solve them. In short, they give you a foundation of hope for your future again. We could not be happier with WWFS.
